Heather and Brian have always enjoyed traveling and we have stayed in a dozen vacation rentals around the world, as we like the extra space and ability to cook. We've always been Disney fans as well. We live in the SF Bay area, so Disneyland is an easy drive and great vacation destination for us. Our twins were born in 2008, and we took them to Disneyland for the first time at 17 months old. We also had another daughter in 2011. In 2013 we bought a condo near Disneyland with the intention to start a vacation rental business. That went so well that we wanted to add another place, but this time we wanted something we could visit with extended family groups - ideally at least 4 bedrooms. Heather really enjoys helping our guests with their vacations and feels very blessed to be running a business that helps people the world over make special memories with their families, while being able to provide income for her own family.
After seeing the overwhelming success of our first property, Enchanted Hideaway, we wanted to get a second property, but this time we wanted a private home with a pool, that was large enough to accomodate 12-16 people. We viewed many home in the area, but so many felt so small even with 4 bedrooms. When we found this property we knew it was perfect - spacious, great entertaining plan, and excellent location. The neighborhood is nice, and the next door neighbors on both sides are lovely. Now that the Enchanted Lodge is remodeled and decorated in our fun and classy style we look forward to our own vacations here as well as hosting you. It is truly Enchanted.
ENCHANTED LODGE - Walk to Disney! Classy! Family Friendly! Magical! Highest quality furnishings and amenities. Huge 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath, game room and pool, decked out for fun and easy family vacations! Our goal is to help you truly relax.
We stated here with our 3 children(6,8 &10) and my parents. It was our first overseas experience and we are so thankful we chose enchanted stays. Heather made this whole experience such a stress free one. From the moment I first made contact she was prompt with her responses and so helpful with all my questions... and there were many!! The process itself was effortless and then when we finally arrived we were completely blown away. The Lodge is just perfect, it met everyone's needs. The kids loved their room and all the toys, dress ups and the pool. All four adults had plenty of room to be together or get some space away when needed. The instructions for every facet of the home are easy to follow. I would not hesitate in returning to the lodge or recommending it to anyone. Hopefully we will get to go back some day. Thanks heather, Brian and your whole family for providing us with the perfect American Holiday.X
Heather was awesome to work with. She responded to every email and question within minutes. The house had everything you could ever want or need. We didn't have to bring anything. We stayed with my family of 5 kids as well as my brother in law and his 2 kids. There was all kinds of toys, video games and activities to entertain all of the kids ranging from 6 months to 12 years old. All of the drawers and cupboards are labeled and very well organized so you don't have to look for anything. I honestly couldn't think of anything that could have made our stay any better. Don't look past this house you will be very happy with your stay. This house is perfect for Disneyland, Angels Games, Convention Center and within 25 minutes of Newport Beach.
This place is exactly a 10 minute slow walk to the back of the convention center. If you have a pass you can get in the back if not you have another 10 minutes to walk around.
The house itself has two nice adult bedrooms and one divided bedroom with two sets of kids bunks beds. The garage was converted to a game room. The kitchen is eat in. There is a dining room and the great room is pretty great. There is also a pool and an outdoor seating area.
This house lacked nothing. It felt comfortable the moment we walked in. Everything was labeled and nothing was missing.
We rented two houses for my company in the same area and this was the superior house. It was a perfect, low cost, way to attend a week long trade show at the Anaheim Convention Center. We had some friends spend the final night with us because their company gave up their hotel. The four adult men found the bunk room more than adequate and the remote controlled fan was nice for drowning out the one snorer in the group.
The owner was very easy and professional to deal with.
This was our first time renting a house and we will never go back to hotels! The house was laid out very well, everyone had their own space and also lots of space to come together and watch a movie or have dinner. It is located in a lovely neighbourhood away from the hubbub of the Disneyland Resort, but also close enough to walk to. Loved the theme rooms and the pool area and the kids really enjoyed the games room. It was comfy and cosy and very homey! Highly, highly recommend this vacation home!!
Just stayed here and had a great experience. Very nice place with everything (and I mean everything) labeled so you never have to go through 5 drawers looking for the butter knives. It was too cold to swim, but the pool area looked well taken care of and we did use the nice BBQ grill one night. The "game room" (converted garage) was great and we used both the pool table and the Ping-Pong top for the pool table. The big, comfy couch and bar in the living room were both great places to hang. The house was spotless on our arrival, and it is very well maintained. Will stay here again. Thx!
We visited Disneyland in December 2014 with a group of nine people (two families) and kids aged 8 through 12 years. The house couldn't have been more perfect and it was truly a home away from home for our holiday. Heather and Brian have thought of everything and we wanted for nothing during our three week stay. The kitchen had everything you could need and when we tired of eating out or just needed some rest time at home, we had everything we needed to prepare a meal - you couldn't compare it to a hotel room! The lounge suite and mattresses were so comfortable we considered trying to pack them to take home with us :) The pool table, DVD selection, Wii, toys and games were all well used by the kids during our down time. The house is located in a lovely neighbourhood and we enjoyed the easy walk to either the ART Disney shuttle stop or straight through to Downtown Disney. We could go on and on about Enchanted Lodge but we can only encourage you to go and stay and have the best Disney vacation ever!
We are located in a nice, family friendly neighborhood just a block south from the Disneyland & the Downtown Disney resort area! Its a 10 minute walk to Disney property and 25 minutes to the entrance gates of Disneyland or California Adventure or 2 minutes by car. The Anaheim convention center is within a 15 minute walk, or 2 minutes by car. Honda Center, the Grove, Angel Stadium are within 5 minutes by car. Los Angeles with all its attractions is about 45 minutes away. It is only 25 minutes to Knott��s Berry Farm, Wax Museum, Medieval Times, Wild Bills Extravaganza, just 30 minutes to LAX Airport, Hollywood and Beverly Hills. 90 minutes to San Diego, Sea World, and an hour to Legoland. If you want to go skiing, it is ninety minutes to Big Bear Mountain.
